— Edward Granlund, college student, continues his contributions to the local community through the latest successful Habitat for Humanity Project. The non-profit organization, Habitat for Humanity, works to provide people in need with a place to call home in their local community. Granlund spends his free time volunteering for the organization and helping to build these homes. This month, he helped with a home for Natasha and her son, Braxton. A dedication of the successful project will take place later this month as Natasha and Braxton are welcomed to the Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County family with a tour of their new home.
Edward Granlund, Westminster, Maryland, is a student whose goal is to garner knowledge from the world. Along with his participation in community service, he is a student working toward his Bachelor’s degree in Cyber Security, gaining the tools and wisdom need to mitigate online technological threats, to combat hackers, and fight cyber terrorists. In addition to his goals in cyber security, Granlund also has gained extensive knowledge regarding financial investments and is fluent in both Spanish and English. He also holds a black belt in the martial arts and is a Crossfit practitioner.
Edward Granlund, Maryland, has served alongside members of Habitat for Humanity for an extended period and looks forward to continuing his partnership with them. He finds fulfillment in aiding those in need in his local community and helping their dreams come true. Because Habitat for Humanity and other organizations like it rely on the services of volunteers to complete its sizable projects, Granlund and his team can come alongside other volunteers and give back to members of the local community like Natasha and Braxton.
“The family was so thankful for their new home build by Habitat for Humanity. They sent a letter to the Granlund Team who worked on their home with a handwritten note saying, ‘There is no blessing as heart-warming as your family being a large part of giving my baby a place to call home. Thank you.'” – Edward Granlund
